Pale straw color with no lasting stark white, foamy head.

Very carbonated, light, watery, crisp and refreshing.

The aroma is a faint typical macro lager smell with more rice character due to the rice adjuncts versus corn.

It tastes of carbonated water, and faint barely malt. Maybe a slight bit of rice and generalized grains, but pretty bready all the way through.

This is one of the better light beers. Hell, this beer was even three months past it's expiration date and it still tasted good.

Coors Light has much more flavor than this, but this isn't necessarily bad because of that fact.

I would like to say, however, that this beer does taste better in a bottle than a can. With most other macro beers, it doesn't ever make a difference to me. But with any product from Anheuser-Busch, their beers always taste much better from a bottle than a can.

For a light beer, this is surely at the top of the list, although there are more flavorful light beers.
